Hillary Clinton in hospital with blood clot after fall
bbc ^

Posted on 12/30/2012 6:12:24 PM PST by traumer

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to hospital in New York with a blood clot, officials say.

Mrs Clinton suffered a concussion earlier this month after fainting and falling down.

At the time, she was reported to have had a stomach virus and to have passed out after becoming dehydrated.

Mrs Clinton is due to stand down as secretary of state before US President Barack Obama officially begins his second term in January.

Doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up examination on Sunday, her spokesman Philippe Reines said.

Mrs Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants. She was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where she will remain for the next 48 hours so that doctors can monitor her medication.

She is expected back at her desk on Monday, Mr Reines said.

Mrs Clinton is due to give evidence before a Congressional committee on 10 January in connection with the attack in September on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi.

The US ambassador to Libya and three American officials were killed in the incident.

Mrs Clinton was appointed secretary of state at the start of Mr Obama's first term, in January 2009.

Her most recent foreign trip was to Dublin earlier this month.

By golly, the old girl really was sick.

That flu this year is rough, stomach & intestinal night mare at the same time. We have heard more locally of dehydration this year than ever.

The neighbor had muscles lock down and could not make it to ER, but had to have an ambulance.

It’s amazing that even one freeper could be buying this.

That her cover-ups and excuse-making is sometimes exotic —THAT is NEW?

Oh, please...! She’s telling us now she intends to NEVER testify about Bengazi.

While that raises the viability of a prez campaign much later, it also means that she’s still a loose-end who knows where a huge Obama body is buried, and it makes her a target for her own Fort Marcy scenario.

But if they disappear her, chances are Bill would spill the beans on GayMuzzie so they’d have to do them both, and that’s very iffy....

Bolesław Bierut died under mysterious circumstances in Moscow in March 12, 1956 during a visit to the Soviet Union, shortly after attending the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union during which Nikita Khrushchev delivered his "Secret Speech", denouncing Stalin's cult of personality and dictatorship.

Dimitrov died in 1949 in the Barvikha sanatorium near Moscow. The rising speculations[3][7] that he had been poisoned have never been confirmed, although his health seemed to deteriorate quite abruptly. The supporters of the poisoning theory claim that Stalin did not like the "Balkan Federation" idea of Dimitrov and his closeness with Tito.[3][7] A state consisting of Yugoslavia and Bulgaria would be too large and independent to be controlled by Moscow.

Cutaneous clot? Intramuscular clot? Subcutaneous clot? Subdural hematoma? Epidural hematoma?

Two of these are serious...the other three only occasionally if they become infected or cause a compartment syndrome.

They say...discovered at followup examination. No physician can make a definitive diagnosis of a subdural hematoma or epidural hematoma without imagining studies which would be definitive. One might suspect hematoma, but only with the imaging would that diagnosis be made. They did not say anything, which I have read, to indice they diagnoses a subdural hematoma or epidural hematoma. Those are the money diagnoses. So were her physician index of suspicision only raised 4 weeks later. Any physician, and I mean any physician, would be guilty of malpractice if they saw a patient who had fallen, manifested vomiting (especially projectile vomiting), who did not presume a subdural hematoma and rule it out with CT or MRI. This goes doubly for taking care of a high government official.

Something is not right here. Incompelete information. Cryptic in nature. We need more information. They put it out there to indicate she had a "brain" clot to the uninitiated. Whick is it? Their press release was meant to deceive.

They should hold the Kerry-Heinz nomination until Mrs. Slick Willy can get back on her feet and testify. Would be so tacky for Kerry-Heinz to seem like he was stepping over her body to get the job.

God forgive me. My heart is hardened against these people. They care not a whit for us or for this land we love. Their lies and treachery have tried to destroy America and us with it at almost every turn, for years and years.

Live or die, they are dead to me. I think of them as demons sent from hell anyway.

So, I really could care less if hell wants H3ll to suffer some, if not to come back home to the community of the soulless.

We’re supposed to pray for our leaders, but these ‘people’ think of us as prey. I’ll not ask to give them guidance.

I am wondering if she had a stroke, and the concussion is just a cover story so as not to damage her presidential ambitions.

For weeks I read rumors that Hillary had a stomache ailment. Now, I wonder if her stomache ailment isn’t actually cancer or something else awful. Look, I dislike the Clinton’s politics as much as the next person on this blog but, I would never wish a dreadful disease on anyone. The bottom line is this ‘sickness’ may not be about avoiding the Benghazi hearings. It may truly be a serious health crisis for Hillary. As voters, we’ll probably never know....we rarely know much about anything to be quite honest....and we’ll be left to speculate.

One of the tabloids is claiming that Ms. Clinton is being tested for a possible brain tumor, noting that she collapsed while climbing the stairs to her government jet back in 2010. Naturally, that incident received almost no attention. But Hillary’s health seems to be declining rapidly and it’s clearly more than a mere stomach bug.

Of course, medical secrecy is a hallmark of the Democratic Party. Obama has never released his health records. I can only imagine what might be hidden in those documents.

she is running scared...I believe this is all cover up, other wise they would show her being wheeled into an emergency room and Bill and Chelsea on her tail following and crying...

I believe nothing from any of them...starting with B.Hussein Obama.

This may not be the half of it and the rest doesn't have anything to do with her trying to duck out of testifying.

Indeed, testifying is probably the least of her concerns now, since today's National Enquirer has a lead article, at pp 10 & 11, (no link available) entitled, "Hillary Clinton BRAIN CANCER DRAMA! Memory loss and vision agony." The Enquirer has followed up on its website by adding the story about the blood clot. The article says she's suffered severe headaches, blackouts, and memory lapses, and that those symptoms have recently increased. As a result, she's secretly checked into a hospital for an extensive series of tests. If the blood clot is connected to this, it means she's a lot farther down the road to the one way journey none of us wants to take than we've been led to believe.

It doesn't surprise me that the Enquirer is the source to break this story since it seems to be the first one to publish things like this about high ranking politicians, just as it as the first to break the John Edwards story.
